Today is International Women’s Day, where we highlight the oppression that women face around the world in their daily life. The music industry, unfortunately, has a horrible gender issue as men continue to dominate the scene, booking majority all-male lineups due to there not being ‘enough women in the industry’. It has been constantly highlighted that there is, in fact, a wealth of incredible women in the industry who deserve to be recognised for their talent and achievements. Thanks to the amazing work that collectives such as Discwoman, Sirens, female:pressure and Rhythm Sister are doing, there will be a day where the lineups are almost equal and are the driving force behind-the-scenes.
Here are 10 tracks from a selection of exceptional producers.
